Ingredients

  • 400-500g round rye sourdough loaf or cobb
  • 1 x 250g camembert
  • 4 tbsp cranberry sauce
  • Splash of dry white wine
  • 3-4 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 3-4 sprigs fresh thyme

Method

  1. Trim the top from the loaf to leave a circle 1cm larger in diameter than the camembert. Cut down 2cm into the dough to make a circular hole, pulling out the bread. Spread the cranberry sauce all over the cavity, then sit the camembert inside. Score the top, pour over a splash of dry white wine and add the herb sprigs.
  2. Wrap in foil and bake at 200°C/ 180°C fan/gas 6 for 15-20 minutes. Uncover and return to the oven for 5 minutes until golden and oozing. Tear or slice to serve.
